Engineer David Schwartz Unveils ‘Flying Bike’

flyingriderproduction-5

It may be funny looking, but it must be fun to ride. The bike is designed by architect/engineer David Schwartz and is designed to maximize pedal spin and speed by dangling the rider from a harness instead of making her sit on a saddle. The rider’s back will be cradled in an overhanging frame to prevent the energy-wasting forward and back or bobbing motions that slow down the riding experience.

The bike was displayed at the Interbike 2014 trade show in Las Vegas, and the Flying Rider will soon be in bike shops. Schwartz said, for starters, he is producing 100 of them to see how it goes. As anyone could guess, the Flying Bike is not cheap, and sells for $4, 770 for a full bike or $2, 462 for the fork and frame only.
